Looking in my memory, what did I see?
All the good times you gave to me.
Even from the park, way after dark,
Listen to the radio in my car.
It's times like these you see the wood from the trees,
You come to my aid when I'm on my knees.
The next time you feel alone, just pick up the phone.

Reach out and touch, whisper my name.
I will deliver, again and again.
Straight from the heart, honest and true,
I promise you this, I will be there for you.

When I think, I'd be lost without you.
Makes me wonder what I did before you.
When it mattered you were there for me,
You were my rock boy, you were my energy.
Time flies but I'll never forget, the way it was the day we met.
Don't be surprised, you know it's true.
I'm gonna be there for you.

Reach out and touch, whisper my name.
I will deliver, again and again.
Straight from the heart, honest and true,
I promise you this, I will be there for you.

Through the sun, through the rain,
I will still feel the same,
Be it good, be it bad,
I'll always understand.
When you're down, when you're blue,
I will be there for you.
Cause nobody does it better,
We're gonna get there together.

Through the sun, and through the rain.
I'll be there for you.
Through the sun, and through the rain.
Be there, I'll be there for you.

Reach out and touch, whisper my name.
I will deliver, again and again.
Straight from the heart, honest and true,
I promise you this, I will be there for you.

    i love how she sings "you were my rock boy, you were my energy" obvi. the song is a little immature, but obvious and upbeat at the same time.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
